First day of projections in Sala Mastroianni. A series of mute from different countries and of various lengths, accompanied by live music. Introduced by Mariann Lewinsky, Andrea Meneghelli and other experts. The only feature film projected, The Red Lantern, closed the day.
The films shot in 1899 are a marvel. If you are into film history, these are the monuments of 19th century cinematography. If you seek glimpses of times long past, to be able to see in living pictures moments from 120 years ago amounts to a mystical experience.
